A BELFAST firm has won a contract for the interior refit of international designer brand Oscar de la Renta’s new concept store in New York.
Portview Fit-Out was nominated for the job following its successful fit-out of the iconic brand’s first concept store in London’s Mayfair earlier this year.
Construction work at the Madison Avenue store in the heart of upmarket Manhattan is well underway with local builders on site since March. The team at Portview has been co-ordinating this part of the build from Belfast with weekly conference calls.
“The existing store is being extended and we are co-ordinating that process from Northern Ireland because of our experience with the first new Oscar de la Renta store in London,” said Portview’s contracts director Sean McEvoy.
Portview’s experienced team, which works across the UK and Ireland for many of the world’s top brands, had to overcome major logistical issues during the work in one of London’s most exclusive areas
Sean said: “This vision had never been put into practice before and it had to be right for Oscar de la Renta’s CEO when he came over.”
